Mossy Oak's Fishing Team is growing with the addition of Brandon Palaniuk, three-time Bassmaster Elite Series Champion and 2017 Angler of the Year.
Established in 2017 in conjunction with the launch of Mossy Oak Elements Agua, the Mossy Oak Fishing Team is growing with five bassmasters and saltwater fisherman Mark Davis. Palaniuk will be joining fellow Mossy Oak Fishing Team anglers on the Bassmaster Series: Kevin VanDam, Ott DeFoe, Gerald Swindle and Jordan Lee.
"I couldn't be more excited to pair with such an iconic brand in the outdoors industry," said Palaniuk. "Mossy Oak has always been a leader in helping those of us that love the outdoors to be more successful through camouflage concealment. Pair that up with their strong efforts toward conservation and you've got the kind of people I want to work with."
"It's important that our fishing team members embody the outdoors lifestyle and reflect that passion in all they do," said Ben Maki, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "We're proud to have Brandon on the team. He's an incredibly successful angler and an outstanding representative for Mossy Oak and our Elements Agua pattern."
Palaniuk joined B.A.S.S. in 2011 and has competed in 89 tournaments. His career earnings total over $1 million. Besides fishing, Palaniuk is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys hunting, snowboarding, videography and photography.
